From back cover:
"All Meg has ever wanted is to get away. Away from high school. Away from her backwater town. Away from her parents who seem determined to keep her imprisoned in their dead-end lives. But one crazy evening involving a dare and forbidden railroad tracks, she goes way too far... and almost doesn't make it back.
John made a choice to stay. To enforce rules. To serve and protect. He has nothing but contempt for what he sees as childish rebellion, and he wants to teach Meg a lesson she won't soon forget. But Meg pushes him to the limit by questioning everything he learned at the police academy. And when he pushes back, demanding to know why she won't be tied down, they will drive each other to the edge - and over..."

READ THIS BOOK! Okay, having said that, I'll tell you why. This book is absolutely addicting! I could not put it down for anything, it was that good. Meg is an interesting character who has had a traumatic past that has caused her to push the limits. John, now one of my favorite love interests of all time, causes her to evolve and look at life from another perspective. This is one of those books that I won't forget about and am going to press onto every reader I know. I was disappointed to learn however, that this is Echols first book that isn't a Simon Pulse romantic comedy! I'll be anxiously awaiting her next book...!! 20 out of 10 stars. Going Too Far is not to be missed!!
